ok, my finace and i broke up but his mother took it upon herself to take my engagement ring away from me. i want it and feel that it is rightfully mine. i was told that if a girl breaks up w/a guy he gets to keep the ring and if the guy breaks up with the girl she gets it. i dunno if this is false but i need to know if i have any legal rights to that ring because if i do i wanna pursue them and get my property back.

AFAIK: An engagement ring is a gift, and once a gift is given, it is up to the owner to decide what to do with it.
